America Ferrera had a moment she'll never forget while walking the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival on Saturday - she became the victim of Ukranian TV reporter/prankster Vitalii Sediuk. Seduiak stunned the "How to Train Your Dragon 2" actress by crawling under her white, Georges Hobeika gown.

Ferrera reportedly told a friend following the event, via Vulture: "I don't even know what happened. I feel something behind me, and there's this guy under my dress, and then two guys drag him away! Of all of the things I prepared myself for, that was not one of them."

The former "Ugly Betty" star didn't seem offended by the experience.

She added, "If you'd asked me what my first experience at Cannes was going to be, I would not have imagined there would be dragons. I would not have imagined there would be, um, ankle biters on the carpet.

"It felt like a crazy weird dream. It was like, I was at Cannes in my dream. I was on the red carpet and Cate Blanchett was next to me, and then some guy jumped under my dress!"

"Dragon" director, Dean DeBlois commented: "It was so confusing. I thought someone was coming to fluff her dress for the photo and all of a sudden he's, like, under it. And it was all sort of over before anyone could process it. He got hauled off and thrown in jail."

It wasn't Sediuk's first red carpet prank. He has also targeted Leonardo DiCaprio, Will Smith and Bradley Cooper. In 2013, he tried to interrupt Adele's speech at the Grammy Awards.

Not everyone has been as good humored as Ferrera. When Sediuk kissed his cheek at the Moscow premiere of "Men In Black III" in 2012, Smith slapped him.
